The quality of any operation is decided by audit or benchmarking the operation or the activities to certain standards, be it ISM Code or ISO 9000/9001 or other relevant.
A certified organisation will have implemented Quality Management System requirements for all areas of the business, including:
ISO 9001 Certification
When you are satisfied that your organisation is working within the guidelines of the Quality Management System, the system is certified as such tool for continual improvement. Audits are conducted in order to make sure the system is in use and updated continiously.
Achieving Certification to ISO 9001 is the first step of a process of continual improvement that will provide your organisation with the necessary management tools to improve working practices throughout the entire organisation.
